Today feels like a “Back to School” day.
First off, the weather is positively beautiful.
There is just something about that hint of autumn that reminds me that summer is nearly over. Luckily, this is 2013 and NOT 2012, so I won’t be heading back to school this year. Phew!
But when Alicia Woodward, editor-in-chief of Living Without magazine, asked if I would like some Back to School tips for families with food allergies, I said sure!
As an adult in college, I often had mini meltdowns trying to find quick, easy, and portable food options. I can’t even imagine how hard it must be for a busy family on the go!
Alicia’s expert tips:
While exposure to gluten for someone with Celiac Disease doesn’t warrant an Epi-Pen, the above tips are still helpful for gluten free folks. What the tips stress to me, are the importance of planning ahead, and communicating clearly with others about your food allergies or intolerances.
For my gluten free lifestyle, I’ve always tried to take time and plan a few meals that I know I can make quickly and can travel well.
Easy to make ahead and easy to store in the fridge until you’re ready to travel.
